Membership Process

Becoming a Member

We believe God calls all Christians to be members of a local church where they can be known, cared for, and equipped to serve. If you want to learn more about what church membership is and why it’s important, check out Why Membership Matters.

At Watermark, we host a Membership Class where you can learn all about what it means to be a member. You’ll also get an overview of the equipping, connecting, and serving opportunities available to help you grow in your faith, meet other believers, and get involved.

What to Expect at Membership Class

We offer Membership Class one Sunday each month. In the class we cover the basics of what church membership is and explain what it means to be a member at Watermark.

At Membership Class, and as part of becoming a member, you will have the opportunity to:

You can review your membership status here.

If you are not able to attend Membership Class in person, but you live in DFW and are interested in becoming a member at Watermark Community Church, please contact us at

Membership FAQ

What is my Membership status?

You can always view your progress in the Membership process by visiting your Membership Status page.

Can I be a member of Watermark if I don’t live in the area?

The word in the Bible that is translated as “church” literally means “assembly.” A church is a group of Christians who gather together regularly to love and serve each other as the body of Christ. If you live too far away to consistently gather as part of the body here at Watermark, we would strongly encourage you to find a Bible-believing church closer to your home and become a member there.

If you need assistance getting connected to a local church body close to your home, please contact us for assistance.

Can I be in a community group if I’m not a member of Watermark?

Hebrews 13:17 says that the Elders of a local church will be held accountable for the care of the souls within the church membership. Community groups are an important part of the way that our Elders shepherd the church body. So, we ask that anyone who is in a Watermark community group is also a member of Watermark and is therefore under the shepherding of the Elders.

Can I serve in a ministry that isn’t part of Watermark?

Yes! Watermark currently partners with multiple ministries in Dallas and around the globe. For more information about serving opportunities outside of Watermark, please email

How do I sign up to share my verbal testimony?

After you have completed Membership Class, you will be connected with a member of our church who will meet with you to listen to your story of grace. This person will reach out to you to schedule the meeting.

If more than a week has passed since you completed the Membership Class and you have not yet heard from anyone to schedule your testimony, please contact us.

Does Watermark have online Membership Class?

Because the word “church” means “assembly,” and membership involves being a part of the church body, we believe that attending class in person is the best way to get connected as a member. If your circumstances prevent you from being able to attend class in person, please contact us.

What do I have to believe to become a member?

We ask all members to affirm that they agree with our core doctrinal beliefs.
